Jamie Lloyd’s third production for Trafalgar Transformed is the multi award-winning play The Pride, written by Alexi Kaye Campbell
The Pride makes its West End transfer to the Trafalgar Studios following a limited multi award-winning run Upstairs at the Royal Court in 2008.
In The Pride, Philip, Oliver and Sylvia exist in a complex love triangle, which spans over half a century, living and loving simultaneously in 1958 and the present against a background of changing attitudes towards homosexuality. Past and present worlds grind together and melt apart, yet the future and its promise of sexual liberation remains ever elusive, as societal repression gives way to self-deception.
The Pride is a hilarious and heart-felt landmark play about courage, compassion and the fear of loneliness in life’s journey towards self-discovery.
